Live Review: Nick Cave - Festival Theatre, Adelaide (30.11.14)

It's not surprising that when the tickets went on sale for Nick Cave's solo Australian tour some months ago, they sold out all over the place. The prolific Australian performer has stuck out as a revered and favoured artist the world over, regardless of what band or project he's performed with, and so when it was announced that Cave would be taking to a run of smaller theatre venues across the country - fans primed themselves to pounce on that opportunity. Joined on stage by Bad Seeds members Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Barry Adamson and Thomas Wydler, Cave performed his first of two shows in Adelaide overnight at the famous Festival Theatre and well, he didn't disappoint.

Our Most Anticipated Record Store Day 2013 Releases

That one last bastion of the music industry that refuses to die – the record store – is going through a bit of a revolution of late. Whether it be record stores that have embraced open artistic ventures like Melbourne’s Polyester, whose in-store performances are widely revered more than a bands night gig at a pub, or the likes of Poison City Records in Fitzroy, who have expanded their merchandise catalogue to skateboarding gear such as boards, wheels and t-shirts, the humble record store is now far more than a place to buy music.

But of course, they still are that gateway to the heaven of actual, tangible forms of music, the sort people are willing to pay for. In celebration of the tangible, this upcoming Record Store Day (RSD) will have record stores in your town chock full of many wonderful limited tangible musical goodies that you can get your hands on.

So here’s a quick list of some of the more anticipated finds around Australia this Saturday:

Live Review: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra - Sydney Opera House (26.02.13)

Last night, the legendary Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds kicked off the first of three nights at the iconic Sydney Opera House, accompanied by members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra string section and a youth choir from Annandale. The resulting two hour performance was one of such high calibre that this run of shows will surely go down as some of the most legendary events ever to take place under the venue's sails. But this is Nick Cave after all, would you expect any less?

Single Stream: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds "Jubilee Street" (2013)

"Jubilee Street" is the second single from the fifteenth studio album to be released by legendary band Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, entitled Push the Sky Away. With the lyrics streaming as you listen to the track, there is simplicity and softness in the sound, with the music stripped back. There's a certain amount of intensity in the song that holds you still, that Cave pulls off so brilliantly (as always).
